    DJ to HJ conversion buckles

    Hello gents
    felt like throwing down a thread on the DJ /HJ conversion buckles.. the DJ buckle started its life in 1933 as the sanctioned buckle for the 10-14 year old DJ boys. In 1938 it was decided to phase this buckle out and all kids 10-18 would wear the HJ buckle ..
    3 firms were authorized to retrofit DJ buckles with a new HJ rondel in an effort to save money and reuse the DJ buckles. The firms were Assmann, Dicke, and Overhoff
    they would flatten the sig rune, drill 2 holes and solder the new rondel to the buckle..
    I love these buckles.. they are my second favorite only to the black DJ!
    it is always a nice suprise to pick up an HJ, turn it over and see the hidden sig rune!! I have owned about 30 of these to get the 10 great examples that I hold now in my collection.. here are pics of some of mine , plus a close up photo of each of the 3 eagle designs produced..
    please post pics of all the HJ DJ conversions you all hold in your collections
    thanks
    Chad
